A boss, parent or authority figure might be in your way at the moment. This person may not agree with your plan of action. What is the best way to get what you want without offending someone who could be too rigid to move? See if you can work around them. Try to balance their needs with your own. There may not be a solution that pleases everyone, but it doesn`t hurt to try to flesh out an agreement. Choose your words carefully, and try to communicate your position as clearly as possible.
